Hi. Just wanted to say that my DS1 has a casting on Monday already and only went to see AK 2 weeks ago!!

Anyone else got castings/jobs coming up?

Housemum Thu 07-Aug-08 13:04:27

DD3 has photoshoot for M&S website next week - other than that, has quietened down (though agency knows we're on hols soon so that might be part of reason)

MelodyDaisy Thu 07-Aug-08 13:50:25

Ooh good luck, this will be my ds1 1st ever casting but he is not nervous at all, don't know where he get's all his confidence from!! He know's they'll be other kids there who have more experience etc, but he's not bothered by this at all!! I am nervous as hell though grin !!

Housemum Thu 07-Aug-08 13:52:41

How old is he? What's the casting for? My 2 youngest model - DD2 is 5 and DD3 is 7 months. Recently we have had a lot of straight jobs ie no casting, but not sure if that's because she has been doing it so long (and occasional flashes of good fortune eg when a child was sick and we had a call as DD2 looked a bit like her!)

MelodyDaisy Thu 07-Aug-08 14:00:02

He is 9yrs old and it's a casting for Disney, not sure of exact details yet other than this and that it's at 11am.

My DD had a few straight jobs when she was a baby, not that uncommon and is nice when it happens too!!

Housemum Thu 07-Aug-08 14:04:10

Fingers crossed for you! DD2 did some shots for the Disney Store Christmas catalogue - Cinderella dress, so a nice easy job for a 5 year old girl!! No problem persuading her to get changed....

MelodyDaisy Thu 07-Aug-08 14:11:03

Bet she loved it!! My DD is 5 as well, that must have been the easiest job to take her to!! lol

Which agency are you with Housemum? My DD was with ES as a baby and only just now putting them in an agency.

I posted on your other thread. My dd1 was signed with BK for a while as a baby but i got a new job so took her off.
Are angencies lookign for a set look? I have sent so pics, but have no idea how long they take getting back? Do they always reply, even if its no?

That's great Melody!!!and very quick as well!!! I wouldn't worry too much.He's a gourgeous young lad and I am sure he'll win them over!!!!
We're still waiting but I am not too bothered, we only came back two weeks ago from our holiday. But I do have high expectation especially because you only hear very good things about UA

Housemum Thu 07-Aug-08 14:24:46

DD2 was with Norrie Carr, then changed to Bruce & Brown when she was nearly 4 - DD3 also with Bruce & Brown.

Don't think there is a set "look" just natural with the camera - and sometimes gorgeous kids don't photograph well, so there is no right or wrong look.

Congrats Melody,AK do get lots of work,still not keen on there chargeswink but i have been on several jobs with AK models.
Hiya Housemum,your little one is very busysmile
Some agents pick a paticular type of child but in general anything goes,if they have big eyes,nice smile and want to do the work then your ok.Agencies can take a while getting back to you.KL are quick,BB are very slow and MOT just been doing there book shoot so they may take a while to get back to you

MelodyDaisy Thu 07-Aug-08 14:28:34

They are bothe lovely looking, your DD1 has lovely, lovely hair too! Some agencies can take ages to reply and some are very quick so just depends on the agencie's you applied to.

I don't think agencie's are looking for a set look these days as different companies are requiring more and more different looks, it would just depend on whether they have or haven't already got children with a similar look to yours. Also it would depend on whether you were applying to more of a photographic agency or an acting/commercial agency I suppose as to what they would require.

hi all my kids have been accepted by bizzykids, standout in leicester, and rascals

Who would you reccommend the most?

thanksx

MelodyDaisy Thu 07-Aug-08 15:57:25

For me personally, I would be more inclined to go with Rascals, but that is just my personal opinion and then BK after that.

totallyfloaty35 Thu 07-Aug-08 17:03:25

pokeydot,urban angels(very good agency) are recruiting up north,suggest you apply to them as they have no start up costs.

Rubystar77 Thu 07-Aug-08 22:29:56

clarebear1 Thu 07-Aug-08 22:33:32

can anyone recommend an agency for my 2 year old,a reasonible priced one? im in kent

christabel Thu 07-Aug-08 22:33:47

Hi anyone had any dealings with Chilli Models. They are down south.

totallyfloaty35 Thu 07-Aug-08 22:58:06

I thought chili models was midlands?
Try BB,KL,MOT and U/A for agencies with little or no costs.
Congrats Ruby smile

keydot - you can look at www.albamodel.info for a list of a listed agencies and it also says the ones to avoid as scam agents.

rubystarr well done on your first casting

melodydaisy - i have seen alphabet kids at loads of our castings this year - althought ours have mainly been commercial castings this year.

pokeydot Fri 08-Aug-08 13:19:05
